I recently joined my company's Investment Evaluation team (major mining company) as a technical subject matter expert, yet my ability to follow along and make inferences about the Investment Evaluation Model was limited. This course provided the exact info that I needed. Clear breakdown of concepts, and the blank investment model is a great learning tool to fill in as you progress.
Ashok Kumar Mishra
This particular course will add more flavour if the instructor spends more time in explaining certain assumptions taken in the model and its rationality.
This is a course that will bring me into my first job
Delbert Adivnovak
Excellent mining example with full modeling and explanations of the calculations. Awesome work!. Great definitions and dynamic model!
Furkan Kasa
I was doing research for a long time for my doctorate thesis. I have reviewed many video lessons and contents on the internet. There are not many sources and narrations about Mine Valuation, and those are clearly inferior. This course is truly a blessing for mining engineers who are concentrated in the field of finance. You should start absolutely without thinking.
Teka Derick Tikum
